    EcoFlow Vs Jackery Explorer: In-depth Comparison

    Jackery and EcoFlow power stations are popular, and it’s mostly for good reasons. But if you want to buy a power station, it helps to have information that makes the decision-making process easier.

    Brand Reputation

    When you are purchasing an expensive product like a power station, brand reputation and history are very important. Good customer support (both sales and technical) is vital.

    Both Jackery and Ecoflow have been in the battery generator industry for years now. They both have different products including solar panels, power stations and accessories. Ecoflow also sells batteries that can be used to extend the existing capacity.

    As of the publishing date, Jackery has 11 battery generators (see the whole catalog here) whereas Ecoflow has 11 (some refurbished options) generators (see the catalog here). Their products are available on their official sites as well as major eCommerce sites like Amazon.

    When it comes to user metrics, Jackery has an upper hand. Their products are sold a lot more than Ecoflow’s and their devices have tens of thousands of reviews. The customer service of Jackery is amazing. Ecoflow’s customer service is good too.

    Update: Ecoflow recently released a new delta version called Delta 2 which is both cheaper and better than Delta. I would go with the new model. Similarly, Jackery released a new model too, called 1000 Pro which is Smart and more feature-packed than the current one. The 3rd comparison in this article should give you in-depth info.

    Here’s what we’ll compare (click on the links to skip directly to that section):

    Our main comparison points will be:

    • First impression
    • Portability
    • Battery capacity and power
    • Recharge times

    To help you narrow down your options, I’ll also provide a few final thoughts. Let’s get started!

    Entry level (priced around 200) – Jackery Explorer 240 vs. Ecoflow River 2

    Low-range or entry-level battery stations are a good choice for light users who don’t need a ton of power. Because of that, they are cheaper.

    Car adapter 6.5 hrs (12V) 3.2-3.7 hrs (12V, 100W)
    Solar Recharge 7 hrs (60W) 3.0 hrs (110W)

    Which one is better?

    The EcoFlow River 2, while being slightly more expensive than the Jackery Explorer 240, has a few advantages. I felt like it was the better pick here, offering more power, shorter recharge time, and slightly better build quality. Besides, it’s a LiFePO4-based battery station and is more likely to last longer.

    Low range (around 500) – Jackery Explorer 500 vs. Ecoflow River Pro

    If you’re looking for something more powerful than an entry-level battery station, then you might want to consider the mid-range stations from Jackery and EcoFlow.

    In terms of portability, both stations are quite lightweight for their class. The Explorer 500 weighs just 13.32 lbs, whereas the River Pro is around 16.8 lbs. That being the case, neither of them should be too difficult to carry around.

    Battery capacity and power

    The River Pro has a slightly larger battery capacity of 720Wh compared to the Explorer 500’s 518Wh. It also offers more continuous power output of 600W compared to the Explorer’s 500W.

    You can expand River Pro’s capacity up to 1440Wh using an extra battery

    Battery Capacity 518Wh 720Wh
    Battery Power 500W 600W
    Surge Power 1000W 1200W

    Recharge time

    Thanks to the River Pro’s direct AC input, it can be recharged in just 1.6 hours via AC compared to the Explorer 500’s 7.5 hours, which is a huge difference.

    When it comes to solar charging, the Explorer 500 will perform better if you want to carry just one solar panel. That’s in consideration that it takes 9.5 hrs to charge using a single 100W-rated solar panel. The River Pro, on the other hand, requires two 110W-rated solar panels with a total of 9hrs to charge.

    ecoflow, jackery, explorer, in-depth, comparison

    AC Adapter 7.5 hrs 1.6 hrs
    Car adapter 7.5 hrs (12V) 6.55 hrs (12V)
    Solar Recharge 9.5 hrs (100W) 9.0 hrs (2 x 110W solar panels)

    Which one is the better pick?

    Both battery stations offer plenty of juice for their price range, but the EcoFlow River Pro is the clear winner here.

    It offers much more battery capacity and power, plus it can be recharged quicker. What’s more, it has more ports to accommodate more devices. The only downside might be that it requires two solar panels for the best results.

    Mid range (around 1000) – Jackery Explorer 1000 Pro vs. Ecoflow Delta 2 | MOST POPULAR

    For those of you looking for something more powerful, the high-end battery stations from Jackery and EcoFlow are worth a look.

    First impression

    These stations are much bigger and heavier than the mid-range models, but they can offer more power, too. The Explorer 1000 Pro’s design makes it more practical, in my opinion.

    With all ports and the display placed at the front, it will be easier to use without having to move around, while the Delta 2 has ports on both shorter sides. The battery expansion slot is the only port on the longer sides.

    But that’s just the exterior. Let’s take a look at what they have to offer:

    In terms of portability, the Explorer 1000 Pro is slightly lighter compared to the Delta 2. With a weight of 25.4 lbs and 27 lbs, respectively, both should be fairly easy to carry around if needed.

    Battery capacity and power

    The Delta 2 has a larger battery capacity of 1024Wh, which is expandable to 3kWh, compared to the Explorer 1000 Pro’s 1002Wh. In terms of power output, the Delta 2 can offer 1800W on a continuous basis, compared to the Explorer 1000 Pro’s 1000W.

    Battery Capacity 1002Wh 1024Wh (expandable to 3kWh)
    Battery Power 1000W 1800W
    Surge Power 2000W 2700W

    Recharge time

    If using an AC adapter, which is an ideal way to charge your battery station before heading outdoors, the Delta 2 can charge up in just 1.3 hours. The Explorer 1000 Pro comes pretty close with 1.8 hours of recharge time.

    When outside, the Explorer 1000 Pro will charge faster when fed with 800W of solar input. This will charge the battery in just 1.8 hrs compared to the Delta 2’s 6hrs using a 500W maximum solar input.

    Jackery Explorer 1000 Pro EcoFlow Delta 2
    AC Adapter Input 1.8 hrs, 15A max 1.3 hrs, 1200W max

    Car charger input 12hrs, 8A default 11hrs, 8A default

    So, which one should you pick?

    The Ecoflow Delta 2 offers more battery capacity and power output, plus it can be recharged quicker using an AC input. But if you don’t need the 3kWh power when expanded, it might be overkill.

    The Jackery Explorer 1000 Pro is also a great choice, and it will charge quicker when fed with solar. Ultimately, your decision should be based on the type of camping and power needs you’ll have. Both battery stations deliver great performance for their price range.

    High Range (over 2000) – Jackery Explorer 2000 Pro vs. Ecoflow Delta Pro

    These are the top models for each of Jackery and EcoFlow. Let us see how their unicorns compete against each other.

    Products being compared in this article are Jackery Explorer 2000 pro vs. EcoFlow Delta Pro.

    What’s in the boxes?

    First impression

    I like the design of both power stations, which feel strong and durable. Jackery Explorer 2000 has a nice color combination that contributes to its industrial look. On the other hand, EcoFlow Delta Pro comes with wheels and an extendable handle to help you move around. Thumbs up to the mindful thinking of EcoFlow especially considering its weight.

    Let’s study the physical and tech specs of each power station in the comparison chart below;

    Jackery 2000 pro EcoFlow Pro
    Weight 43 lbs. (19.5 kg) 99lbs. (45 kg)
    Number of Ports 10 ports 18 ports
    Battery Type Lithium-ion Battery Lithium-ion Battery (LFP)
    Warranty 3 years 2 years extension offer 2 years 3 years(register for extended warranty)
    Solar Bundles Available? Yes (view here) Yes (view here)
    User Manual Manual Manual


    It is more compact than EcoFlow Delta Pro, making transportation somewhat bearable. The power station weighs only 44lbs – around half the weight of Ecoflow Pro (against 99lbs). So it’s easier to carry from one location to another. EcoFlows wheels help you to move around on smooth surfaces where as you will find it difficult to carry elsewhere.


    Ecoflow Pro boosts a wide range of outdoor charging ports (3 input ports and 15 output ports – 18 in total). Meaning you can charge up to 15 devices at once. This explains why the generator is ideal for homeowners, campers, and those who like van life.

    You can’t write off Jackery 2000 pro in this case. The 10 ports (2 input ports, 8 output ports) the generator is packed with, could reliably support a ton of devices at all times. But overall, I’d give Ecoflow generator a nod.

    Jackery does not provide a DC output port which is a bummer

    Battery Capacity and Power

    EcoFlow Delta Pro is a beast when it comes to Battery/Power capacity. It powers 3600W with a surge of 7200W. Also, EcoFlow has created an ecosystem, where you can expand its capacity as and when required up to 25kWh!!

    Jackery’s largest model 2000Pro is just a 2200W power station and fails to meet the flexibility of EcoFlow.

    6,500 cycles to 50% capacity, 3,500 cycles to 80% capacity

    EcoFlow Delta Pro comes with an LFP battery that can provide a staggering life cycle of 3,500 cycles to 80% capacity compared to Jackery providing just 1000 cycles to 80% capacity.

    Note : Neither of these stations can be used as UPS. However, they can be used as EPS (emergency power supply). The reason is, unlike UPS, these stations have ~ 30ms switching. Some appliances may turn off during that duration. But I have successfully used Delta Pro as UPS to run projectors, air purifiers, etc. It’s just that old devices like TV’s, computers may reboot during the switching

    EcoFlow Smart generator used to expand battery capacity

    Recharge time

    Both power stations have multiple charging methods. Can be plugged directly into an AC outlet, car charging cable or using solar panels.

    Jackery 2000 pro EcoFlow Pro
    AC Wall Outlet 2 hours to fully charge 2.7 hours to fully charge
    Solar Panels 1200W Solar Panel (2.5 hrs) 1600W 2.8-5.6 hours
    Car Charger Yes (24 hours) Yes

    Jackery 2000 pro boasts faster recharging times (Because of battery capacity). EcoFlow Pro struggles due to its higher battery capacity.

    Jackery uses the same input port for solar and car charging. They provide a convertible cable for solar charging

    So, which one should you pick?

    Both units are great and come from very reputable dealers. Shout out to its impressive power as it can charge all your imaginable appliances, electronics, and power tools.

    The choice depends on your power needs. Ecoflow Delta Pro has the upper hand in almost all categories – power, battery capacity, and output ports. At the same time, it is very expensive.

    On the other hand, Jackery is compact, has lesser charging time, and is cheaper in cost.

    Choose EcoFlow Delta Pro if:

    • Want a high-end power station (for home power backup, running power tools, mobile workers, RV/Van life etc)
    • Expand battery capacity so you will have the option to add more batteries later
    • Run more devices simultaneously
    • Long-lasting (battery cycles are very important. You don’t want the station to lose efficiency after a year or two)
    • You don’t care about noise (Delta Pro makes a lot of noise, its annoying)

    Choose Jackery 2000 Pro if:

    • Your use case is limited ( emergency backup for a few hours, outdoor events, camping, etc)
    • Looking for a compact power station (portability is good to have. Delta Pro lacks it)
    • Hard pressed on budget (you can save over 1000 compared to Delta Pro)

    How Long Can the EcoFlow Delta Pro Last for Home Backup?

    Let’s just say it; gas generators are not ideal for home backup. They’re loud, toxic, expensive to run, and they will soon be illegal in California!

    The EcoFlow Delta Pro has marketed itself as the best portable power station for home backup, but do the claims live up to reality? That’s what we’re going to test today.

    For the sake of this experiment, let’s say that you don’t have a spare battery and you only have one 400W solar panel working at 50% capacity (due to the storm). Let’s see how it does!

    EcoFlow Delta Pro Battery Life and Input

    Before we start, let’s understand how much power we’re dealing with. A full charge can safely last on your shelf for over a year, offering a base capacity of 3600Wh. If you’re expecting this to decline like most batteries, understand that the EcoFlow Delta Pro batteries will last 6500 lifecycles before declining 20% from their original capacity.

    On top of that, if you are receiving 200W of solar energy for 14 hours of the day, then that’s an additional 2600Wh to 2800Wh on your system each day, as the system works at around 94% efficiency, which is higher than any other portable power station on the market. Let’s call it 2700Wh for the sake of simplicity.

    Of course, if you have an additional Smart Battery or more solar panels, then you will significantly increase your power output and you can read our full review of the system for more information. However, if you want to save money on the upfront costs, then here’s what to expect.

    How Long Will It Last for Home Backup

    Now that you know the performance of the EcoFlow Delta Pro, it’s time to put it to the test. Let’s see how long a 3600kWh system can last with an extra 2700Wh per day!

    With Conservative Energy Consumption

    Let’s say you have plenty of ice packs in the freezer to keep everything cool for a couple of days without power. All you need is to charge your family’s iPhones, run a few LED lightbulbs, and keep a television on for a few hours of the day.

    If you’re charging four 10W LED lightbulbs, one full charge will last 84 hours without solar panels, so you’d also be able to charge your iPhone as many times as you’d like with the ongoing power from the solar panels. A 50-inch TV (110W) could stay on for at least 10 hours a day on top of that, and 5 or 6 hours with TV and internet so you can watch your favorite streaming service!

    If you’re using a hotspot on your phone and limiting your energy use during the night without offsets, this type of lifestyle could last indefinitely.

    With Moderate Energy Consumption

    A power outage doesn’t have to be too much of a bummer. If you limit your energy consumption, you can potentially power a lot. In this case, let’s say you want to:

    • Keep your refrigerator running
    • Run 10 LED lightbulbs
    • Keep your iPhone charged
    • Run a 110W television

    The refrigerator is the bulk of the energy consumption in this case. One full charge from your EcoFlow Delta Pro will only last 24 hours for a large 120W refrigerator, so the 200W solar offset will certainly help.

    At night, you would have to dramatically reduce your energy consumption to allow the refrigerator to run. In this case, we’d recommend limiting television use to daytime and to limit use to 3 hours or less. If you don’t allow the system to fully charge by sunset, then the refrigerator may not stay on through the night.

    However, a couple of hours will not be the end of the world for the food in your refrigerator or freezer, especially if you don’t open it before turning it back on. For that reason, this lifestyle is plausible for one EcoFlow Delta Pro portable power station and solar panel to last for 3 to 5 days.

    With Heavy Energy Consumption

    Here’s where we run into some trouble. If you don’t want to (or can’t) make any sacrifices during a power outage, then understand that the average home uses 28.9kWh per day. If you want to continue using such high amounts of electricity by running incandescent lightbulbs, refrigerators, televisions, heaters, Wi-Fi, and more, then you will need more power.

    Fortunately, the EcoFlow Delta Pro can potentially help you if you purchase the right bundle deals. With a maximum input of 1600W (continuous), you could easily run the majority of your appliances at home, especially with a spare battery to last through the night.

    Keep Them Running

    Now that you see why the EcoFlow Delta Pro is the top choice for home backup, consider getting one for yourself and putting your gas generator to rest. 3600Wh goes a long way when you have solar panels to assist, and best of all, solar energy is free!

    What are my options for adding additional batteries and Solar Panels to the EcoFlow Delta Pro?

    Adding an EcoFlow Delta Pro expansion battery can be a great option if you need more uninterrupted power. When you add an expansion battery to one of the delta pro units they automatically act as one unit together, which makes for a super easy expansion for your off-grid power. Depending on your energy usage, whether you are wanting to run your power tools, heavy-duty appliances or just need a complete power solution you may want to add an extra battery to your delta pro ecosystem.

    You can add up to two expansion batteries to your EcoFlow Delta Pro for ultimate power security. Without using solar power as an energy source, two fully charged expansion batteries could power a fridge for two days or a circular saw for five hours straight. If you then attach your solar panels to your EcoFlow Delta Pro System, you should be able to run some of your heavy-duty devices uninterrupted to keep you going for all of your Home Backup Needs.

    What is the Solar Input for the EcoFlow Delta Pro?

    The EcoFlow Delta Pro is the only portable generator that allows for up to 1600W of solar input at a time. You can charge the 3.6 kWh battery in just over 2 hours with enough solar panels.

    Also, with its 3600W output (7200W surge), you can easily run your system indefinitely with 1600W of continuous solar input, now that is Smart energy management! This is more than enough for your backup power needs so you can power a refrigerator, air conditioners, or other large appliance. Incredibly impressive and efficient portable power technology!

    How fast will the EcoFlow Delta Pro Charge so I can get ready before a power outage hits?

    You can be fully charged in 1.8 Hours! EcoFlow’s battery management system guarantees longevity and safety while you fully charge your EcoFlow DELTA Pro from a regular AC wall outlet in 1.8 hours. Ecoflow’s x-stream charging technology isn’t just fast, it’s safe too. Definitely the gold standard in charging capabilities.

    What can I use my EcoFlow Delta Pro for aside from emergency power backup?

    The EcoFlow Delta Pro is one of the most incredibly versatile Smart generators on the market. Feel at ease knowing you have an energy backup incase of an emergency, you can bring it along for outdoor adventures (it has wheels for ultimate portability!), rv road trips, or you could even use it to lower energy bills for regular use at home!

    Review: The EF ECOFLOW Delta Max Solar Panel Bundle is Portable, Powerful, and Sustainable

    Solar is one of the most well-known renewable energy sources, but harnessing it for personal use has been difficult, especially if you’re unable to install permanent panels on the top of your home. The EF ECOFLOW Solar Generator Delta Max and Solar Panel Bundle aim to change that, and it succeeds if your needs fall within its power output limitations.

    Before we get into the tech specs, it’s important to report that this bundle costs 2,199 at the time this review is being published. That’s a big investment to make, especially when you consider the fact that four rooftop solar panels can cost up to 400 less. The difference is that EF ECOFLOW’s bundle includes an ultra-high-capacity battery to store the energy absorbed by the solar panel. The energy can be used immediately or saved for emergency situations or multi-day camping trips. This bundle may elicit some immediate sticker shock, but EF ECOFLOW has actually knocked 550 off its original price tag due a price reduction and free coupon provided when you shop on Amazon.

    What is the EF ECOFLOW Delta Max Solar Generator Bundle?


    EF ECOFLOW Delta Max — Size: 19.6 H X 9.5 L 12 W Inches — Weight: 47.9 pounds — Capacity: 2,016 WH (watt hours) — Ports: Two USB-C, four USB-C, 2 DC, one car output, six AC outputs — Maximum Power Output: 2400W (watts)

    EF ECOFLOW 220W Solar Panel — Size: 32.3 L x 72 W x 1 inches — Weight: 20.9 pounds — Maximum Power Output: 220W — Number of Panels: Four

    My interest in solar energy has led me to trying out low-powered panels from companies like Grouphug and Anker. which are designed to charge portable electronics like a smartphone, tablets, or handheld game consoles. While impressive for their size, these solar panels lack the power output necessary to charge or run larger gadgets, be they laptops or small appliances. EF ECOFLOW’s 220W solar pane l can absorb and convert far more energy from the sun, and the Delta Max allows you to easily use it to power much more demanding gadgets. These are the most powerful sustainability tools I’ve tested in my career, and they’ve recalibrated my expectations for solar-powered technology in the future.


    If you’ve never used a solar panel before, you’ll be happy to learn that EF ECOFLOW has made the setup process pretty painless. Using its instructions, I was able to set up the 220W Solar Panel and connect it to the Delta Max in about 20 minutes. It’s important to recognize that I did need the help of a friend to set up the solar panel because it’s several feet long when it’s fully unfolded. This makes it unwieldy to move around as one person. You may be able to assemble it on your own if you lean the panel against the side of a house, or other tall, sturdy surface.

    Setting up EF ECOFLOW’s solar panel had three basic steps: removing it from the included carrying case, unfolding it to reveal its four-panel array, and attaching the panel to its opened carrying case using a set of included clips and straps. That last step is what required me to seek a friend’s help. The opened case acts as a stand for the solar panel, and angles it upward to absorb the sun’s rays more effectively. Attaching the two pieces to one another is pretty simple because the solar panel has holes on its top and bottom edges, so you’ll know the exact places to hook the case onto. I shouldn’t have been surprised that EF ECOFLOW’s solar panel case could be used for more than just protection and easy transportation, but I was.

    With the solar panel set up, it was time to connect it to the Delta Max Solar Generator. This gadget looked imposing, and weighed a ton, but was incredibly easy to use. All I had to do was connect the solar panel’s power cable to a port on the Delta Max. The solar generator instantly recognized the solar panel and began charging. The Delta Max’s screen showed its current charging rate (measured in watts), along with how many hours it would take to fully recharge the battery inside. This was extremely helpful because it let me know whether I had to move the solar panel around, or adjust its angle. It’s common sense that a solar panel will be more effective when you move it away from shade cast by a tree or the side of a house; knowing that a half turn to the left can increase the panel’s effectiveness by 15 percent is much less intuitive.

    First Impressions of the EF ECOFLOW Delta Max

    I tested the solar panel’s efficiency in a couple of spots on the front lawn of a suburban home on a sunny day, and saw firsthand how much moving it around can make. In a slightly shaded area, EF ECOFLOW’s solar panel was only transferring energy to the Delta Max at a rate of between 10 and 20 watts. It would have taken dozens of hours to charge it up at that rate. By moving it into a sunny spot, the solar panel was charging the Delta Max at a rate of 140 watts, and would recharge the solar generator in 11 hours. Yes, that’s still a long time, but the difference was remarkable. It should be said that you can charge the Delta Max by plugging it into an outlet — which admittedly takes less time because there’s no variability in how much energy it’s absorbing — so you’re not out of luck if weather is crummy.

    The bundle I was sent for review had a single solar panel. but you can hook two of them up to the Delta Max at one time. Under optimal conditions, you can charge the Delta Max at a rate of up to 440 watts. Based on my experience, that’d mean being able to fully recharge the Delta Max in just between five to six hours. Each solar panel costs 549, though, which makes its very expensive proposition. We hope that improvements in manufacturing processes lead to price cuts on solar panels over the next few years regardless of the manufacturer. EF ECOFLOW says you can use any solar panels that use the same EcoFlow Solar Connectors, aka plugs that can connect to the ports found on the Delta Max.

    Space and Charging Considerations

    A persistent problem you may have when using a solar panel to charge the Delta Max is finding enough space to set it up. The solar panel requires several feet of clearance when it’s unfolded, which makes it a no-go in crowded areas, including densely populated public campgrounds. If you have the luxury of a front or backyard that gets good sun coverage, or take trips to a private campground there’s no doubt that EF ECOFLOW’s bundle of a solar panel and the Delta Max can help you use renewable energy more easily, but space is an absolute necessity. It’s worth noting that the EF ECOFLOW’s solar panel is pretty compact when it’s folded up. This is helpful for both at-home storage and for times when you want to pack the solar panel up in your car. The solar panel’s protective case has a handle, which makes it easy to carry around, too.

    At first glance, EF ECOFLOW’s Delta Max may look like the more boring part of the company’s sustainability tech bundle because it can be written off as a huge battery pack. That’s true to some extent, but the Delta Max is so well constructed and thoughtfully designed that it’s worth recommending on its own. The 48-pound solar generator has a capacity of 2016 WH (watt Hours) and can output up to 2,400 watts of electricity at a time. EF ECOFLOW says the Delta Max can be fully recharged in about 65 minutes when connected to an outlet using the included AC adapter, though I stuck to solar charging during my tests.

    The Delta Max’s high battery capacity and generous number of outputs makes it a natural choice for campers, or anyone who wants to be prepared to power their essential electronics in the event of a blackout. The frontside of the Delta Max features two 100-watt USB-C PD (Power Delivery) ports and four USB-A ports, two of which support fast charging speeds. These ports are perfect for charging smartphones, tablets, game consoles, headphones, Bluetooth speakers, and all manner of other portable electronic devices. I connected a handful of gadgets from these categories to the Delta Max at once and all of them started charging immediately.

    The Delta Max’s front side also houses its LED color display, which shows how much power it’s outputting in real time, and how many hours it can run before running out of juice. This is extremely helpful information because it’ll help you moderate your energy use to avoid dealing with a dead battery. The Delta Max’s screen also includes the traditional battery percentage number, which ticks down as you use it. You can check the solar generator’s energy levels by staring at the screen, but you also have the option to monitor that information on the go using the EcoFlow mobile app. The app is entirely optional, and is not required to use the Delta Max. That said, it was helpful to keep tabs on its battery levels when I wasn’t in the same room.

    Using this feature requires you to create an EcoFlow account, and keep the Delta Max in an area where it can maintain a strong connection to an active Wi-Fi connection. The app walks you through the process of how to connect the power generator to your phone, and eventually the internet, and is pretty user-friendly. Overall, I’m happy that the app exists, but glad it’s not a requirement.

    On the back of the Delta Max, you’ll find six AC outlets, a car power outlet, and two DC outlets. The car power outlet was of particular interest to me because one of the gadgets I rely on regularly is a tire inflator that’s powered using that connector. Sure enough, the inflator sprang to life when I plugged it in and hit its power button. I’ll always keep the tire inflator in my car, but it’s good to know that I can rely on the Delta Max if I decide to inflate bike tires indoors. While the solar generator’s car power outlet served one of my niche needs, its AC plugs are the real stars of the show. These ports allow you to use the Delta Max to power appliances like coffee makers, microwaves, and toasters, or high-powered electronics like big-screen TVs and party speakers.

    Battery Power

    My big battery test was using the Delta Max to charge an electric bicycle. In one hour, the solar generator charged the bike’s battery by approximately 30 percent (its screen doesn’t show battery percentages) while draining the Delta Max by only 7 percent. During that test, the Delta Max displayed that it was outputting power at a rate of approximately 120 watts, and could sustain that level of energy output for 14 hours. That means I could fully recharge the bike several times before having to top up the Delta Max. Since I used solar energy to charge it, my entire e-bike charging system used 100 percent renewable energy. It may seem a little idealistic considering the price and space requirements of EF ECOFLOW’s bundle. but it was the highlight of my testing time with these gadgets.

    EF ECOFLOW says the Delta Max should last 800 recharge cycles, which may seem alarmingly low at first, but makes sense if you take a step back. This isn’t an inexpensive battery pack you’ll drain and recharge after a day of casual use, it’s designed for extreme conditions like camping or multi-day blackouts. You may only recharge the Delta Max once per month, in which case the solar generator would last 66 years without needing to be replaced. If you charged it once a week, the Delta Max could continue to hold a charge for 15 years. You may also be worried about the Delta Max slowly losing its charge while sitting on a shelf between charges, but I didn’t find that to be the case. The solar generator kept the exact level of charge after two weeks of not being used. You should check the Delta Max once every couple of months to make sure it hasn’t lost a charge, but I wouldn’t worry too much about it.

    Final Thoughts on the EF ECOFLOW Delta Max

    Three final observations about the Delta Max that stood out to me. First, its weight didn’t turn out to be much of an issue because of the handles on either side of its top piece, which made it easy to move around. The solar generator still weighs close to 50 pounds, but the handles helped a lot. Second, you need to press a button on the front and back of the Delta Max to turn on its two sets of ports. This prevents the solar generator from supplying energy to both sets of ports when only one set is required, saving power. Third, the Delta Max’s screen will show the ports that are currently being used by displaying a small picture of it beneath the battery indicator. The utility of these three design details didn’t occur to me at the time, but stuck out upon reflection.

    The price of EF ECOFLOW’s bundle is pretty steep, but fully worthwhile when you consider how well both its solar panel and solar generator perform. The fact that the Delta Max has the flexibility to be charged independently of the solar panel. or with multiple panels connected, makes it an especially compelling tool to use during parking lot tailgates, beach parties, and other gatherings. The age of consumer-level solar charging equipment has begun, and if the gear I’ve tested from EF ECOFLOW is any indication, it couldn’t come quickly enough.
